But don't worry, unlike you Obama will be well protected from al Qaeda on his Martha's Vineyard lux vacay this month.
“There Could Be Other Targets NOT Just Embassies!”
This has to be a joke or false. Obama told us Al Qaeda and the War On Terror is over. /sarc
Terrorists carrying MANPADs may be safely ignored. < /s>
The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the continued potential for terrorist attacks, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arabian Peninsula. Current information suggests that al-Qaida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August. This Travel Alert expires on August 31, 2013.
Terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests. U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure. Terrorists have targeted and attacked subway and rail systems, as well as aviation and maritime services. U.S. citizens should take every precaution to be aware of their surroundings and to adopt appropriate safety measures to protect themselves when traveling.
We continue to work closely with other nations on the threat from international terrorism, including from al-Qaida. Information is routinely shared between the U.S. and our key partners in order to disrupt terrorist plotting, identify and take action against potential operatives, and strengthen our defenses against potential threats.
We recommend U.S. citizens register their travel plans with the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy through the State Departments travel registration website.

Comment making the rounds: Detroit is dead, al Qaeda is alive.
this is like a hollywood movie. A group of bad guys attack prisons, release the other bad guys with nothing to lose and they kill Americans..
This is why the mooslimbs will never win. We celebrate our religious holidays and go forth to spread the good word through deeds of charity and good will. They spend a month steaming about something that happened a thousand years ago, say a prayer, go forth and drench themselves in the blood of innocent people.
The only people that fear the United States are it’s citizens.
Uh, they are winning.
I figured we’d get this in a month or so for 9/11/13.
Dont worry, Al Queda has been defeated and the WOT won... no need for concern
It’s the take-off and landing where the SA-7 missiles get ya. Once you’re at 15+Kft, you’re pretty much OK.
This doesn’t pass the smell test. The regime is giving few details why these embassy closing are taking place, only that it’s on an as needed basis. Being so adept at showing what the right hand is doing so you won’t pay attention to the left, this sounds like a distraction away from the newest Benghazi revelations. They’ve been caught with their pants down once again, so they put on a new pair to show off.
Duh, possible terrorist attack! That’s something new? Try this: Look over here! Please don’t report that Congress will be exempt from Obamacare and CIA employees are being threatened!!
Watch the other hand.
Something’s up here and it isn’t what they are warning about.
I guess that $500 Million check Obozo sent to the Pali’s cleared. Bombs aren’t cheap doncha know.
Who was that guy - was it Krispy Kreme? - warning about the next attack where thousands of Americans die like it was a foregone conclusion? He was defending NSA when he made that statement.
